There is now new technology that allows you to replace old silver and gold fillings with a more natural looking composite filling. Composite fillings are bonded to the tooth and research has proven them to be about 90% as strong as healthy, natural tooth material.

There are four different choices that you have when it comes to filling a cavity.
Composite Fillings - Natural tooth colored filling, bonds to the tooth to provide added security.
Silver Fillings - Inexpensive and strong amalgam based filling.
Gold Fillings - More attractive than silver and provide for a better fit.
Porcelain Fillings - Also called inlays, this is the most attractive and durable of the tooth colored choices.
